The Monrovia City Council plans to appoint Dylan Feik as its new city manager.

According to the staff report (, "Feik was previously the City Manager of the City of Calistoga, in Northern California through April of 2019. From his time in Calistoga, Mr. Feik’s application highlights his work leading multiple initiatives of direct relevance to Monrovia, including the development of a 10 year Capital Infrastructure Plan, new initiatives to address pension costs, meeting the City’s goals for affordable housing development, and leading the City’s response to the Napa-Lake-Sonoma wildfire disaster in 2017. Prior to becoming City Manager in Calistoga, he was the Administrative Services Director in Auburn, California, Assistant City Manager in Knoxville, Iowa, and held various positions in the City of Olathe, Kansas.
